  • Creating Editor Components for Composite Web Form Elements
    The purpose of this comprehensive guide is to reveal how you can create editor components for composite elements for your WPC Web forms. In other words, this is a guide for creating an entity of a couple of different editors and combining them in a single and easily maintainable Web form element. This of course results in an easier manipulation of Web forms in design time. Moreover, you avoid major inconveniences, such as separate manipulation of otherwise logically unified editors and wrong positioning of the different editors.
    For the sake of clarity of this guide, the author explains the whole approach through an example of a "Question and Answer" element designed for an FAQ web form.

    I created a custom page layout, however my portal css style sheet or theme doesnt seem to take affect on some of the iviews that i add to the page.  The portal style sheet does take effect on the sap standard page layouts though....any ideas?
